Meet English majors:
“I am thankful to be chosen to go to LaGrange College, because being selected
meant I got to have so many opportunities I wouldn’t have had otherwise, ones that
have been extremely enriching to me.”
The English major and coaching minor originally planned to become a high school
English teacher and coach. His love of writing evolved even more during the last
four years, and now he hopes to write for a sports magazine.
“Sports Illustrated would be my ideal choice,” he says, smiling. “I hope to take
a year off after I graduate, work and then go to grad school before I start a career.”
A Rotary scholarship funded one year of study in the U.S, but after two semesters
at LaGrange, he decided to stay.
As a high-school senior in his home country of Norway, Carl wasn’t sure where
he wanted to go to college.
“My brother got a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship, and he had such a great time
studying in the U.S., that he encouraged me to do it.”
Carl applied for the one-year scholarship through the local Rotary Club, where
his father is a member.
